Out of Touch
However, there are times I'm blind sided. Pop culture is an Achilles' Heel. I thought I was pretty good at consumer issues-- until last week.
I was at a mini mart and parked in front of the outdoor ice freezer. Let me back up for a moment. I don't camp. No parties. No picnics. No reason to buy bagged ice cubes.
I was shocked to see a large bag of ice cubes cost $ 4.29. Are you kidding me?!?!
I realize you're not just paying for frozen water. You're also footing the bill for labor, transportation, electricity, freezers, etc., but $ 4.29? Really?
I really don't have a clever way to end this, other than to say the 99 cent bag of ice days are long gone.
